FAQHere I've compiled a list of the questions I get asked the most often ^_^FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) How long have you been making miniatures?
I started out in July of 2008 with a book by Sue Heaser called Making Doll's House Miniatures with Polymer Clay. It's a fantastic book with very easy to follow tutorials on everything from miniature potatoes to Tiffany style lamps. I was amazed at how such simple clay techniques could produce incredibly realistic results. From there I started using pictures of real food as a reference and it's spiraled into an obsession ever since!
2) Where do you purchase your plates and other miniature accessories?
Luckily there's a local miniatures shop called Little Enchantments (http://www.littleenchantments.com) that has anything doll sized you could possibly ask for. I've also bought dishes and all sorts of cutlery from Ebay.
3) Do you make the plates or just the food?
I only make the food ^_^ The only n

Po Pi Po~DRINK UP YOUR VEGGIE JUICEEEEEEEEEEE.Po Pi Po~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
*stab* Ok, no I just had to share this. It's totally random. XD
Just came back from the quest of doom (aka job hunting stuff) and I dropped by at Family Mart (a convenience store) to buy a drink, and I finally found... THIS:
Just in case you don't know what this is, it's originally from Hatsune Miku's song:
I burst out laughing when I saw this, and I know I scared the old guy behind me lol
Can't believe they actually made this... and it was really 200 yen LOL
It tastes like banana though... I think I prefer regular veggie juice. Or carrot juice. Or tomato juice.
That's all /shot

I will be leaving dA for two years..Hey my awesome watchers and friends!I will be leaving dA for two years..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. ) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going!
Please, if you disagree with

I will be sending you a note soon!
Everyone else is receiving a llama~~ yay!!
I just bought some candy and thought it would be nice to give it away. It all comes from Bulk Barn Canada, everything is factory sealed but it might have come in contact with nuts, there's no way I can know that. Also I did buy some nuts at the same time but those are gone, just sayin'.
The candy bag will contain: chocolate loonies and toonies (yes that's what we call our 1 and 2 dollar coins), mini caramel chocolate bars, maple sugar candies, chocolate spiders and a dark cherry skull lollipop.
Just FAVE this journal and you will be entered in a random draw. The draw closes on October 24th. CLOSED.

Featured Friends Section!Jennetics got a new design!Featured Friends Section!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is up and running once again!
Just a little thing here.
Some of you know that I have a "featured friends" box on my page.
It's be a section where I personally list you and say a few words about you.
You DON'T have to be a super duper close friend for this section.
Hell, you could just be an acquaintance for all I care.
There IS a catch to this though.
And that's, how you get featured.
In order to get featured, you have to make a picture of my ponysona, Jennetics, with your ponysona or one of your favorite characters.
Bases are totally fine, as well as personally drawn pictures.
Here's a couple pics of Jennetics:
If anyone wants to be featured in this section, please feel free to comment here or send me a note.
But be sure that you either have already made a picture of our characters, or that you ARE going to.

This journal is just to let you know there will be another giveaway soon, for premium memberships. So stay tuned!
The bad part is, i'm getting low on Points (seriously low). This means that competitions and giveaways might slow down a bit, but i'm trying my best to keep them running...for now.
Improve your art skills! Don't use bases!Just wanted to throw out some links made by some of our fellow and awesome Monster High artists that take the time to make tutorials to help others improve their art skills!Improve your art skills! Don't use bases!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's face it. Much of the Monster High art seen on the internet is all made from BASES! This is not a good thing. 98% of the monster high bases used were traced from official monster high images. This is also called ~Art Theft~ I for one am not a fan of it. I would rather see our up and coming MH artists spend that time working on their own art skills so they can draw for themselves and not use bases!
Bases are bad, Mmkay? x3
Here are some tutorials to that may help you with the issues you have:

SickHe could hear it, the bloody figure walking behind him over nimble feet. Then his eyes were forced to close as cold, bony fingers covered his sight. Nails like claws buried deep into his cheek as she breathed softly, surely bloody lips drawn into that scornful smile he both loved and detested.Sick3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And then she was gone, back into the sweet torments of his mind. And then, like venom, she left him on the floor, dead and strangely calm.
I had to get this out of my head.
I know, I'm weird.

So sorry that I haven't been very active lately. I've been busy, which seems the story of my life. Lol! But, I also just haven't been myself. Right now I am blaming it on the horribly long, and bitterly cold, winter we have had here and am hoping that now that we are getting some spring weather things will turn around for me! Here is hoping! XD
If you want to keep up with me another way, I have started posting again on my tumblr gnewi-art.tumblr.com again. I have, and will be, posting my WIPs there.

Auditions are now closed, and three "finalists" have been selected as the voices for the characters. Congratulations to:
as Louis Despatis

All three sent in terrific voice clips with very good quality, and I hadn't expected to find such suitable voices for all three characters, especially on such short notice for such a small production! Thank you all for spreading the word
